Succeeding in The Media Industry
Since you made your way to Expert Media Coaching, you already have some of what it takes to succeed in the industry. You have shown a passion for the job. However, that is not all that you need to be successful in media. Let us take a little look at what you need…
Passion and Drive
As mentioned previously, you are going to need a passion for this job. You need a drive to succeed. This is not an easy path to get into…you are going to deal with rejection. Only the people with the strongest of will are able to get through it. If you do not have a genuine desire to succeed, then you won’t be able to handle the rejection that the job throws you at every turn. It is worth noting that some of the biggest people in the industry still suffer from rejection from time to time. It is not just about talent in this industry, it is about being the right fit for the job that you are applying for.
By reading this article, you have already demonstrated that you have at least some desire to be successful. You need to show potential bookers that you really are enthusiastic about doing this job. Perhaps one of the best ways in which to demonstrate this is by undergoing basic on-camera training and TelePrompTer training. This shows that you are somebody who is willing to undergo training to improve themselves as a media professional.
Of course, you also need to be watchable. The only reason why a producer will be sticking on you on that screen is because they want you to earn the network ratings. Your sole purpose is to keep people tuned into the channel in order to ensure that the advertising revenues continue to flow in. .
When you work for a TV channel, or an internet channel for that matter, you are going to need to have an engaging personality. While you are going to be talking to (hopefully) thousands upon thousands of viewers (millions if you score the best positions in the industry), you need to make it seem like you are talking directly to one person. If you can do that, you will be able to score positions quickly.
Sadly, very few people are born with an innate ability to entertain. That is okay…That is why you need to work with a media coach. They will be able to help you bring your personality to the foreground. They will be able to show you the best way to come across on the screen. If you are the type of person that people love to talk to and be around, chances are that you have what it takes to be a media personality.
